All organisations have a business need to exchange information with the outside world. Unfortunately, each communication path provides a route for cyber attack. Whilst air gaps can be used to protect specific network enclaves, this solution lacks any efficient, controlled or auditable means of implementing even the most basic data transfer, and actually increases the risk of malware ingress and data leakage.
The QinetiQ SyBard® range of security products is designed to enable secure information exchange between network domains. Its strategy of ‘defence in depth’ not only protects business continuity and profitability from denial of service or the exfiltration of sensitive data, but can also identify and mitigate against Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and Zero-Day attacks.
An example of a full product suite deployment, giving layer 2-7 protection, for a one-way data transfer scenario. Deployments without the SyBard® Diode are suitable for two-way data transfer scenarios.
The portfolio includes:
- SyBard® Diode – provides guaranteed one-way data transfer
- SyBard® Sentry – a family of guard products that perform deep content checking of files, email and XML – allowing two-way data transfer while protecting from malware ingress and data leakage at the application level
- SyBard® BreakWall® – protects against data link and network-layer attacks by interrupting Internet Protocol (IP) flow and creating a proprietary protocol break
Our profound understanding of secure information sharing is complemented by our ownership of Boldon James, the leader in COTS solutions for Secure Information Exchange.
